Abstract

The vacuum evaporation of GaN thin films using GaN powder (5N) for GaN-based electroluminescence devices (ELDs) is reported. The crystal structures of the evaporated GaN layers were amorphous, which was confirmed from reflection high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED) patterns. Auger electron spectra revealed that the layers have excess Ga metal. Bluish-white light emission was observed from the GaN-based ELD under AC operation at RT. Although the emission intensity was weak, the electroluminescence spectra started from the band edge of h-GaN.
